  1. I have designer for the iPad. When I use my Apple pencil and try to select/tap objects neither tool works correctly I think. I have to "drag" with my move tool to select object and then select the node tool in order to select nodes. Neither of them work by tapping the object. Is this how it works or am I doing something wrong.
  2. In another thread on the forum we just found an inconsistancy in the software while using 'break curve'. There is a different result when selecting multiple nodes and than press 'break curve' than when you single select a node, press 'break curve' and than select the other node and press 'break curve'. Break on multiple nodes seem to behave differently than break on single nodes per step: * When we select both upper nodes and press 'break curve' --> The broken section we get as a new curve-layer UNDER the current layer, and Designer select both layers * When we select the left node first, press 'break curve', than selected the right node and press 'break curve' --> The broken section we get as a new curve-layer ABOVE the current layer, and designer select both layers In the first situation when a user clicks on a node that just got broken, we select the original shape (it has priority above the broken-out part). But in the second situation when a user clicks on that node, he selects the new node on the broken-out part and moves the broken curve-node (it has priority above the original shape because of the layer order is different now). I would expect both situations to have the same layer priorities as result. Where the just broken-out curve-layer would best be on top I think, so that layer is selected in the viewport so we can immediately move the broken-out curve after pressing 'break-curve'. This is happening in both the current version (1.6.5.123) as well as in version 1.7 RC2 (1.7.0.350) Video * First I use break the curve by selecting the upper nodes one by one and using 'break curve' on each node. --> result is the new layer with the broken curve-segment is on top, so the nodes of the just created curve (the broken segment) are on top and got selected when clicking or dragselect, because that layer is the upper layer * Than I multi-select both upper-nodes at once and press 'break curve' once --> result is the new layer with the broken curve-segment is on the bottom, so the nodes of the original curve (with fill) are on top and got selected when clicking or dragselect, because that layer is the upper layer inconsistant behaviour break curve.mp4
  3. Hi, After using 'break curve' Designer generates new nodes for the new broken nodes/segments. But the new nodes are behind the existing nodes, so when selecting using click it selects the existing nodes, because these are on top. Most of the time I would like to select the new nodes (of the broken part) instead. But how can we do that? See video: * Select two anchors of a shape * Break the curve --> Designer adds new nodes on the same place for the broken curve * Try to select the nodes of the broken curve-segment without moving the existing nodes... I would like to move the broken segment nodes up, but I can't manage to find a way to do this without moving the 'old' nodes first... I tried holding ctrl, alt and shift when selecting the nodes to get the back-node instead of the front-node, but that doesn't work. How can we select these back-nodes (of the broken segment)? break curve.mp4
  4. Hi, I'd like to request a feature that would allow me to add nodes directly between existing nodes on a shape, similar to how Illustrator's "Add Anchor Points" tool works. I think this could be even better if you could select which nodes you want to add nodes between, rather than this only working for the entire shape. For example, if I have a circle with 4 nodes, and I select the top and left nodes and use this tool, it would add a single node evenly spaced between the two on the existing path at the top-left of the circle (see screenshot). If I select the entire shape, it would add 4 nodes, one between each connecting pair. Thanks!
  5. I've just bought Affinity Designer on my iPad (2018, 6th generation) and I'm really impressed. I Only have a bit problem with the pen tool: when I put nodes, I can't place them close to each other. I always need to magnify the picture when I would like to path small details. (I use Apple Pencil). What should I do? Maybe that is why I'm newbie to Affinity Designer. (Vectornator doesn't produce this issue, I can put nodes very close in this app) Thank You for helping me!

  6. Hey guys I just recently made the switch from Adobe ecosystem to Affinity Designer & Photo because i'm not trying to shell out $600 a year for the rest of my life. I'm getting myself adjusted with Designer right now, but i hit a snag. I can't seem to Add/Remove nodes to existing paths like you could in Illustrator. I've tried searching in Help, but nothing comes up. Is this feature not currently available in Designer? If that's the case, then when can we expect this option in a future update? I only ask because it's something I use often. Thanks in advance for your help and time.
  7. Hello. With some brushes I can not work out how to have them a continous loop. They leave a gap over the red node and if I delete the red node the next node becomes red. How can I avoid this? Thanks.
  8. Hi, yes, yet another "how to join 2 nodes post", but I've been in struggle for two days now, I'm creating a font and will have a lot of this places with 2 points together but with different bezier points (see image), I need really clean vector with 1 point instead of 2. When moving 1 point to second one, it highlights in yellow color and snaps to it, I looks like YAAYYY it converted into 1 point???? NO, it's still 2 points just hanging in the same coordinates Selecting 2 points and clicking "Join curves" "Close curves" nothing is happening. "Smooth curve" is great feature, but not great for me in this situation, as shape very much changes How to really create 1 point from 2? without touching the bezier handles and doing anything with hands again (it will ruin the original shape) P.S. Also, why point sometimes have square markers and sometimes round markers? (like in attachment)
  9. Is it possible to merging two or more selected nodes into 1 node (all nodes belong to one curve)? This is a very important issue for me - I use such functionality incessantly (Inkscape, Blender 3d, Corel Draw). Nowhere can I find how to do it at Affinity. thank you for the remarks
  10. My current workflow (using illustrator and the Astute Graphics Inkscribe tool) is to eyedropper a colour, Draw a closed shape, deselect, then eyedropper again, then draw a second shape off the points/nodes of the previous. I cannot replicate this in Designer (or Photo) with the pen tool. Playing with the snap parameters allow me to, to an extent, draw off the first shapes points but there's no way to give snapping prominence over the general sides of said shape so accuracy cannot be maintained. I understand this is probably quite a difficult thing to explain, but the Affinity tools seem halfway there so would be amazing if I could switch 100%. Failing that please encourage Astute Graphics to enable their Illustrator plugins to work in Designer!
  11. Affinity Designer for iPad. I cant find tutorial about „selection of objects and nodes“. There was one... i want to look it again. Can somebody post the link, please? thankyou for Support. MMMax
  12. Hi, it's the second day I'm using AD and I was working on an artwork when out of all sudden it stopped showing the separate nodes. Is it possible that I have pressed something by mistake? And more importantly: how can I (re-)activate the view of the nodes? Thanks a lot in advance!
  13. I have searched for a solution to this, but maybe I am not using the right keywords, or the right approach to the problem at all... I have two paths, A and B. The node at the end of B, when I create it, is "snapped" to the path of A somewhere near the middle. However if I alter path A, I would like for the end of path B to move along with it... a sort of "persistent snapping, if you will". Instead, path B stays put and a gap opens between the two paths. See the attached screenshot for an example. Is there some way to achieve this? Perhaps a different approach to that which I'm using? It would really help a lot when I go in to "clean up" my paths after a first cut. Thanks... Jon
  14. Hi, when I press "Node Tool > Transform mode", all nodes on selected object are locked. Is this OK, or is something wrong?
  15. Hi, is there a way to remove just one handle? I'm using AD on iPad…
  16. What is this menu/icons for? I'm using AD for iPad…
  17. Hi, Is there a way to make bezier handles snap to 45 or 90 degrees? Most apps allow for this by holding down shift, but shift behaved differently in Affinity Designer, snapping to the existing curve. The only workaround i've found so far is to use the pen tool to redraw the bezier curve by clicking and dragging on the same point while holding shift. Is there another way to do this? Thanks.
  18. Update: I went to Microsoft and tried it. You can use the vector brush tool with the surface pen in the same “drawing” motion that you can use on the iPad. I’ve been debating purchasing an iPad Pro vs. a Surface Pro 6...I was messing around with the app on the iPad Pro at the apple store and one thing I liked a lot is you can use the Apple Pencil to essentially “draw” your vectors through the vector brush tool. Is there the ability to do this on Microsoft surface pro with the surface pen with the pc version of affinity designer? Or is it only for the iPad app? Thanks!
  19. While using the Pencil Tool in AD for iPad, is there a way to change a setting to automatically close a path, where the nodes of end and beginning of the that path join. Or will I have to switch to Node Tool and close each of them manually?
  20. This is a feature that I have in another application that is vector based. The line width can be adjusted between nodes. To the point of making the line between two nodes invisible. It allows for closed shapes that look like they are actually open. The lines on either side of the invisible line shrink down accordingly and form points that resemble the end of a stroke. Not sure if this has been requested or not but wanted to put it out there for the powers that be. Thanks in advance!
  21. Hello handsome and intelligent developers! I have a small feature request. Currently with the node tool, when editing a shape, if you single click on a line between 2 nodes, it adds a node. This is super useful! But i notice that a double click on a current node does nothing at all. Double clicking a node with the node tool to delete it would be a great use for this currently unused action, and just another way to make the node tool a left-hand-free tool (since right now, to delete a node, i have to click it and then remove my hand from home row to hit the delete button). Let me know if you think this is a good idea!
  22. Sometimes you require to align the nodes of shapes which it's nodes are not in the corner of the shape (see image 1), and it will be great if this can be done without modifying the shape to be align. I imagine that in the future this could be done in a new node option, in the alignment button (Image 1 and 2). If this can be already done, I would be more than happy to learn that. Thank you again for this amazing software!
  23. I've noticed during my usage of Designer that, even when snapping is enabled, the pixel snapping doesn't work in the pen and node tools (it does a bit in the former, however it gets completely disregarded when aligning to a shape). Most of the stuff I create ends up being exported as a PNG file, and half-pixels (or the like) usually don't look good in the image at all. To combat this, I need to manually set the values of each node in the Transform panel after creating the shape - a slow and annoying process. I understand part of this is to make it so people can easily make complex shapes and align to edges and stuff, however a simple option to force pixel snapping for everything would be super useful. Thanks
  24. Hi Often times we have to deal with bad vectors where there are many nodes stacked on top of each other, it would nice if we could just select all the nodes and "merge" them into a single node. Does this feature already exists? Thank you
  25. I'm sorry if this is an obvious question but I simply can't figure out how to select nodes on a path in any way other than the rectangular selection. If I want to more precisely select nodes (eg, with a more freehand selection or through multiple selections), how can one do that? For example, how could one select only the 'E' in the attached example?
